Social Media & Content Specialist

Suburban Maryland (Company Confidential)

About The Position:

This is a confidential job posting because we are looking for a social media and content marketing rockstar to help us disrupt multi-billion dollar B2C industry that has gotten too set in its ways and we don't want to telegraph our strategy to our competitors just yet. If you are thrilled by the notion of creating a truly industry-leading social media presence backed by a dynamic content marketing campaign, this would be a great position for you!

We are looking for someone who is equal parts creative, analytical, competitive, and empathic who can lead and grow our social media and content development efforts. Our goal is to create an entirely new customer experience that will not only drive sales, but will ultimately position our well-established firm of several hundred employees for rapid national expansion.

Our Executive Committee has authorized the formation of a new Digital Strategy Team and given us a mandate to transform a historically analog business into a responsive, digitally-driven enterprise. In effect, we have both the excitement of a startup, and the stability of an established company, backed by a strong, research-based business plan. Your role on the Digital Strategy team would be to design a new social voice and presence for the firm, establish best practices, manage our content marketing program, grow our lead generation efforts and engagement on social channels, and extract insights from analysis of our campaign performance.

  • Create and manage the firm's content marketing programs and marketing calendar with product and technical support from other team members and external contractors.
